    I swear I think this is ridiculous. The meals are high enough as it is, they are just being greedy IMO.

    All of these extra charges are going to come back to bite them......the economy is not good right now..

    How on earth can they justify charging x amount for a steak one evening then putting the price up another...to be brought down again! Greed

    We've been caught with some of the ADRs we've made at Christmas :sigh;

    This seems very underhand and also very short sighted of Disney to do this.
    Fortunately if that is the complete list, then we don`t tend to frequent those particular restaurants so it won`t affect us too much. I`d certainly have a word in someone`s ear if the YSH was on the list though!

    If you have transport, please consider dining offsite during these times. There are very nice restaurants quite close to WDW that will be happy to serve you for the same price year round!

    Charley's Steakhouse has a free transport van remember!

    Also, depending upon where you dine, if you get a cab from DTD the cost for transport isn't that high.

    Disney needs to realize that some forms of greed are just not going to be condoned.

    That`s a great point to make Tink.
    Much as we love dining on Disney property [and will continue to do so in certain restaurants], more recently we have been trying some off-site places for dinner where we have had some great meals at a lower cost than on site.

    The only thing we miss is that when dinner is over then that`s that. i.e. we can`t take a pleasant stroll through the resorts to walk off the meal before we retire.
    There are some great restaurants "out there" though aren`t there?

    Yes, there are some very nice restaurants that will provide a meal just as nice or nicer (than some) WDW restaurants. Depending upon where you've dined you can take a walk thereafter. The Dr. Phillips area is nice for a stroll, the malls of course (although those don't necessarily inspire fine dining) parts of I-Drive... Celebration. All depends upon where you are of course. I'd not stroll along the 192.

    I'll check and see if I can find a contact number for Charley's, Keith. I'm not positive which Charley's it takes you to, so I'll try to find that out too.
